Subject: Do you know caves with bats?

Dear All,

If you know locations of bat caves you could help a research team in Kumasi
and earn some money, see file attached.

An interdisciplinary team of scientists from Ghana and Germany
have established a research program into bat ecology and human
health. We will be happy if you could provide us with information
about caves with bats in high numbers in Ghana.
A reward of GH¢30 will be provided for new information on cave
locations that we then decide we can use in our study.
We require information on:
• location
• size of cave
• whether bats use the caves and their number if known
Please contact Prof. Samuel Oppong on 0322 060 381 or 0244
535 692 or email

Thank you for
your assistance!

Sharing is caring!

  1. I love the fact, Kajsa, that they sent this to you! What have you been doing to make them consider you an expert on bat locations???

  2. Fiona! You mean I never mentioned my interest in fruit-bats, upside-down-sleepers and winged things to you? 😉

  3. Oh, if only I had gotten this a few months ago! Up until July, the roof of my house was probably the most active bat cave in Labone. Now that the roof has been changed, I’m sure the bats haven’t moved too far, Coffee Shop, possibly? Now where do I collect my Ghc30, lol!
